Apply to Serve on the Board of Directors

OnPoint is a not-for-profit financial cooperative owned by its members and governed by a Board of Directors. Directors are members themselves, and represent the interests of the entire membership and determine the strategic direction of the Credit Union.

Applications are accepted year-round.

The deadline for the 2019 Director election cycle has passed. Applications received after 5:00 pm on Friday, September 28, 2018 will be considered for the March 2020 Board election. OnPoint will retain the application materials you submit and a representative will follow up with you in late 2019 to confirm your continued interest in being considered at that time.
